Description:

This icon has been painted in the village of Mstera on the wooden plate. According to the tradition of Russian icon painting, the work is painted in egg tempera paints and detailed with brilliant gold paint. Gold is also used to create a frame around the depicted icon. On the back side of the icon the artist has left her first name (Anastasya), listed the materials she has used (lime-tree, tempera paints, gold paint), and also stated the fact that this work was completed in the summer of 2007.
Very often Palekh, Mstera and Kholui artists paint icons, and this decision isn't influenced by a fashion or a public demand. It is a century-old tradition. The schools of Palekh, Kholui, and Mstera appeared under the influence of icon painting.
